Uniform Law on Assignment for Benefit of Creditors

Session Description: 
I'm on the Uniform Law Commission's Drafting Committee for a uniform law on assignments for benefit of creditors. I'll discuss the uniform law process and provide information on assignment for benefit of creditors issues, how those issues relate to bankruptcy, and the potential for a uniform law thereon.
Learning Outcomes: 
Under the laws of most states, assignment for benefit of creditors ("ABC") is an unutilized, or under-utilized, tool. That's because most states either, (i) have no ABC statute, or (ii) have ABC statutes with poison-pill provisions that no one wants to use. I'll discuss how a uniform law will make the ABC tool available and usable and its connection with bankruptcy.
